The Tigers took the first game of a short two game series with the Oakland A’s last night.  The final score:  Tigers 8, Athletics 3.  Starter Rick Porcello picked up his ninth win of the year.  Miguel Cabrera and Carlos Guillen each hit a two-run homer in Detroit's six-run fifth inning.  The same two teams go at it tonight, with rookie Duane Below getting his first start of the season.  GO TIGERS!
